As the Mets fall to four games under .500, much of the discussion is starting to shift on if they should become trade deadline sellers.
One of those names they could potentially deal was Monday's starter, Zack Wheeler.
The right-hander was not his best, allowing five runs -- four earned -- on 10 hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings.
Still, that did not stop Wheeler from receiving questions about whether or not he could be pitching for a team other than the Mets at some point this year.

"It's something that you don't want to think about, but I guess it's in the back of your head," Wheeler said. "But I'm here now and I want to help this team win. I know we're capable of it and we got a good squad. We need to turn things around very quick and I think we're very capable of that. It starts with the pitching. Just got to bear down, keep runs off the board and have quick innings."
SNY's Andy Martino has reported on the Yankees' interest in Wheeler.
